Luxe with Lucia - Lounge Lizard

Fiona Clare, best known for her bespoke wedding dresses, has just launched some deliciously pretty silk dressing gowns or rather 'robes' as she prefers to call them.

Quite right, too. They could indeed double up as dresses - hold one together with a great big sash and you're done. For lounging about in tropical climes in your very own villa or on sweet mangoes and fresh coffee beside the pool, nothing could be more appealing. They come in three sweetly pretty Liberty prints at

£295 each.
